I love every part of this book — my only reservation is that the hermaphroditic character is called “it”. These phenomena repeat throughout mjne in every war. The original movie did have an alternate ending that was changed due to being too abrupt.

Enemy Mine Series by Barry B. Longyear

I found both the movie version and the novella equally strong and can’t say which one I’d prefer. I have read the original award-winning novella as presented in the book The Super Hugosnot the adaptation from the screenplay adapted from the novella, and it’s even more beautiful and powerful than the movie, perhaps. If you’ve seen the movie, you do not know the real story, you have not read the book.

As I suspected, because I saw the movie 30years ago, the book is very good. Propaganda of the kind the human authorities spread about Drac for purposes of imperialist expansion is still in use today, making Enemy Mine no less relevant, or less interesting, for another generation.

Enemy Mine

A film produced six years later a film which unfortunately is hindered by poor special effectsthe exposure took the story beyond the book world and moved it into the attention of the general public.

It shows the reader through the main character’s experiences why it is rewarding and worthwhile to try to understand other cultures. The plot of enemies having to work together to survive is older than that movie.

I suppose the scavenger’s processing ship evokes images of a mine, but I can’t imagine anyone would thing that would do anything except confuse the viewer, if they tried to associate it with the title.

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Enemy Mine The alien Dracon and the Man face each other; crash-landed – both stranded on the barely habitable barren rock of a planet that they have fought over in space not an hour before.

To increase the viewer’s sympathy with the characters,: Using the same pronoun we use for toasters and jelly beans to refer to a living, intelligent creature is not okay and the fact that Longyear uses it all the way through to the end kinda pisses me off. But where Longyear falls a little short is in style.

I’ll have to skim the book to make sure, though. This book is wonderful. Dracs are a race of aliens which are reptilian in appearance and reproduce asexually.

I loved how much deeper the relationships are and how touching things can be. In it was produced as a science fiction film by Twentieth Century Fox. Maravillosa historia, nada menos que eso se puede decir de esta novela corta.
